2002 Mercedes-Benz C-Class C240 4dr Sedan (2.6L 6cyl 6M)
To be perfectly honest I was going to leave an excellent review, Why? Because I need to get rid of this absolute failure of a car! But I thought and came to the conclusion: I can't even lie about this piece of junk, I wouldn't be able to sleep at night. I bought it used in 04 with 22K, still under warranty, within 2 months the transmission went out, they replaced free with a new one, not too bad right? WRONG! then (no warranty) due to the tranny problem (or visa versa) the torque converter and radiator went bad: $3500 2 catalepsy converters: $1100 ea 2 alternators: $1000ea 2 mass airflow intakes: $900ea 5 SETS OF TIRES AND 4 BREAK JOBS (with rotors), they don't give us enough room to list all failures
-auto door locks don't work, ac has been charged 3 times, twice after leak supposedly fixed $850) cd changer gone, sun roof. Gone. To the person (of course) that wrote they are getting 28.9 mpg. In this car? It cant even get that hanging off the back of a tow truck (it's most frequent position)
Truthfully, the worst car I've ever owned. Seriously, Mercedes is taking us for fools, they're selling us way over priced junk and pushing it as old school German quality and then their cashing in on ridiculous maint and repair costs. Proprietary to MB service centers only of course. Crooks
